a damage tower building in gaza city center the eighty family members are lucky not to be sheltering in un run schools in far worse conditions. i would have been no allayed many of wednesday. in gaza hundreds of civilians have been killed in less than three weeks palestinians are in every way fatigued by this war it's bitterly felt all the more during the supposed holy days now palestinians call this the age of martyrs israel has been dropping these leaflets on the west alleging that hamas is withholding the full number of casualties among its militants but despite the shocking and horrendous number of palestinian civilians killed a mass has an answer for why it's rejected internationally proposed indefinite ceasefire deals with fear that's about the freedom we're talking about as a server is a big one hundred forty six miles with two million people being in
a big siege since eight years that we're talking no fear no airport no products no electricity everything is going to have over israeli occupation we're going to continue to defend ourselves to have our freedom especially the wall of the silence there is growing international pressure to put an end to all of this but so far both sides remain stubbornly and tragically far in their stances harry fear r.t. yasser. over a thousand palestinians have been killed in the campaign so far with israel losing around fifty soldiers and three civilians but now dozens of reservists are now refusing to take part in signing a petition to denounce the offensive i hear on r.t. international we spoke to one of them. we're not willing to be their good israelis and to support their military adventures to support the the oppression of the native population but we have to remember that the population of this country and
the majority of it are the palestinians even if whether they're in palestine itself or whether they're refugees so we can't just count ourselves among israeli jews and ask ask ourselves whether you know whether we're close enough to the soldiers to the government of the establishment we have to think about the people of this country and of this region and the best interests of everybody involved it's impossible to stay. and yet it is possible because the society around us israeli society is so militarized so caught up in. this in not terroristic propaganda in education that are. almost entirely supports support for the operation even encouraging their government to go further to kill more during the course of this operation over six hundred
protesters against the operation against the war have been arrested and are still under arrest for trumped up charges because the. police brings up against you one day here they want to suppress the protests and they queues you assaulting them or illegal assembly or obstructing policemen and in the line of duty with these sorts of accusations. joining us today c.e. observers working at the crash site of a malaysian airline a seventeen in east ukraine they say they are sick and tired of being interrupted by gunfire gives forces claim to be closing in on the resistance of donetsk and insist they've retaken control of several towns close to the crash site over these claims have been refuted by the self-proclaimed both already is in the region. joins me live from the russia ukraine border romana good morning to you what can you tell us about this latest escalation well it's been
a couple of days since. and the international team of forensic experts plus the international police force involving such nationals and australian nationals they cannot get to the site of the crash as the fighting that been seeing is between the ends of government forces and they ukrainian military now this is all happening despite the announcement of a forty kilometer combat zone by president bush and so that's clearly being violated meanwhile the civilians that continue to die both in that place near the crash sites of the malaysian airlines flight plus in other cities surrounding the city of donetsk which is one of the largest cities in eastern ukraine. right around thanks for that. no images released by washington which purport to show how russia or tucked east in ukraine has led to more speculation in the media the images were
posted on twitter by a washington official a guy nature can cut through the spin. some journalist received the satellite pictures which the u.s. presents as evidence of russian shelling into ukraine via e-mail but much of the world found out about it from the twitter account of the u.s. ambassador to ukraine one of the images according to u.s. officials shows russian self-propelled artillery in washer and the other part of that same image u.s. intelligence determined shows craters inside ukraine indicating strikes from artillery the date on the picture is july twenty third these images have changed quite a few hands before they made their way into the investors tweets on all of these pictures you see the name of the company digital globe which is a commercial provider of satellite imagery and aerial photos the office of the director of national intelligence is said to have analyzed the pictures and written
all these captions with their analysis and then they handed it to the city apartment to be released twitter the spokesperson of the russian defense ministry had this to say such materials were posted on twitter coincidentally since it's impossible to establish their authenticity due to lack of exact reference to the location and the extremely low resolution. journalists now operate in an environment where both sides that is the u.s. and russia brushoff evidence put forward by the other u.s. officials attack media that they're to even question the information that they put forward so r.t. came under yet another attack this time on twitter here's the u.s. embassy in washington responding to our news tweets about the satellite images it says considering who pays artists bills it's not surprising that are to questions validity of u.s. satellite evidence and then there is another tweet saying given some of the experts
shown on our teeth very hard to believe anything they say one has to wonder if the underlying implication is that everybody absolutely must believe everything the u.s. government says and presents this evidence well there's not much questioning in the u.s. mainstream media c.n.n. has learned u.s. intelligence satellites and radars have monitored repeated artillery fire from the russian side of the border for the last several days in washington i'm going to check out our team it's been only a few weeks since he won back control over the industrial sister cities. tours but it's reported to quitman to begin extracting shale gas is actively being installed under the very close watch of ukrainian troops to show you some showing the area that's up for grabs for the fracking industry in the country of the so-called don't you it's a basin where kiev has been cracking down hardest on resisting the forces in east ukraine locals have staged numerous protests against the controversial extracting
method in the past but the war led to those concerns being put aside. now the british dutch energy giant shell is among the companies licensed to drill in the basin and other stakeholders ukraine's holdings there recently welcomed the son of u.s. vice president joe biden on to its board of directors. journalist and founder of wide awake news charlie mcgrath what he thinks is happening. czech republic know the entrenched germany they've all been in this kind of gas extraction from show otherwise known as brac and here you have this opportunity in eastern ukraine in the middle of a civil war to circumvent a decade worth of regulation and protest and otherwise the kind of link the procedure companies have to go through in order to go into regions and extract that this kind of gas from shale there's a vested interest in joe biden's family to have destabilized the ukraine joe biden son name to the board. it is this gas company this energy company in ukraine and
now having seen it pushing hard to develop gas in that region how can this not be a conflict of interest it's a boon for these corporations that are having the military stand guard while they set up equipment to go ahead and start this process while president putin is calling on russia's military industry to move quickly to make itself and the armed forces self sufficient as comes off for ukraine which had been helping build hardware for russia broke off military cooperation with moscow russia will now take over the production and maintenance of some attack helicopters also military planes ukraine will no longer supply parts for ballistic missiles spacecraft and orbital rockets will also be made entirely in russia for the total cost of severing military industrial ties with ukraine will come to an estimated two hundred and fifty million dollars one expert told us that russia made preparations for the
split in advance. we never bought any completely. weapons from ukraine only components and we do not even need to build new factories as all of these parts can eventually be produced at our existing facilities and i do not expect any problems we will be completely technically independent from ukraine so there is no way to manipulate us when a political split with ukraine appeared likely we bought some of the parts to keep in reserve they are easily enough to cover our needs until we can produce them ourselves within two and a half years. you can find all the very latest developments in the ongoing ukraine crisis on air and online of course at r.t. dot com. good to have you with us for the program today in qatar migrant workers who helped to build luxury offices for the organizers of the twenty twenty two world cup haven't been paid for a year a guardian investigation found them living in inhumane conditions and constant fear
of being imprisoned after being left without paperwork and the current sponsorship system known as cuff chains foreign workers to a single employer who can then treat stuff badly seemingly without consequence so punishment migrants reportedly end up living ten to a cockroach infested room with dirty water their documents are illegally seized and they are forced to work six to seven days a week for ten hours in the searing heat of over well forty five degrees celsius and all payment reportedly stops after the first few months. from the international trade union confederation things qatar should be boycotted until fundamental labor laws are put in place. look at tower is a slave state it some more than days stayed up. by one person so it will contract he signed before you leave your home country but when you get
to get the employer can often simply tear it out or not pay you wages or treat you in any oppressive way they like work as above desperate for working poor countries so most of these migrants are from nepal india the philippines parts of africa and i don't understand because nobody tells them what they will face when they get ticket. it's not given enough attention by international governments companies governments they can say thank you we don't want to work with you until you change the words until you abolish the foulest system until you've put in place fundamental like the right. the hardest militants from the so-called islamic state of pushing further into syria and iraq sowing death and destruction along the way the extremist groups hardline take on islam has alienated even al qaida but that
